If you're reading this, it's because you have likely seen Sinister and are attempting to seek out the very creepy and unusual music heard during the footage of the families being killed. If you went looking for this in the original soundtrack release from Christopher Young, then you were left disappointed.
The music you seek can be found here.
(Spoilers will be flying fast and furious from now until the end of this post.)
Family Hanging Out '11
Song: Silence Teaches You How To Sing - Part I
This is the song set to the disturbing footage of the family being hung from a tree branch in their own backyard. The actual song itself is 24 minutes long, and given that this sequence is not nearly that long, only a portion of the song is used. This edited version represents the shortened version used in the film.
Song: Silence Teaches You How To Sing - Part II
Another portion of the same song plays as another family burns to death duct taped and chained inside their car. This is the song that has the infamous chanting.
Pool Party '66
Song: A Body of Water
As another family is tied to lawn chairs and pulled into a pool one by one, this song can be heard playing.
Sleepy Time '96
This especially disturbing sequence features the use of this song, which plays as each family member slowly has his/her throat cut.
Lawn Work '86
Song: Fragment # 9
This song, taken from Accurst's album called Fragments of a Nightmare, plays during the most jolting moment in the film - the deranged lawn mower scene.
House Painting '12
Artist: Sunn O))) & Boris
Song: Blood Swamp
Things don't end so well for Ellison and his family with the final "footage" track that plays as his young daughter paints the house in her family's blood. The version of this song is shortened, reflecting that of the version used for another film called The Limits of Control. This version also reflects the one used in Sinister.
Artist: Boards of Canada
This song plays first when Ellison burns the home movies and his family begins packing to leave, as well as makes a reprisal during the end credits. This is the song with the very unusual dragging drum beat.
The tracks listed below are also used in Sinister, but I'm afraid I can't remember at which point during the film they are played. They're listed below in no particular order. If anyone out there can shed any insight on the scenes where these tracks are played, I'd sure appreciate it.
The world’s oldest celebration comes to life in The End of Summer: Thirteen Tales of Halloween, an anthology that honors the darkest and strangest night of the year. Each story is designed to be intrinsically and intimately about Halloween—its traditions, its myths, and its effects—and they run the gamut from horrifying to heartbreaking. Halloween night is the tapestry through which a haunted house, a monstrous child, a late-night drive to a mysterious destination, and other tales are weaved. Demons are faced, death is defied, and love is tested. And not everyone makes it out alive. The End of Summer has arrived.
